An electrician and native of Usumutong in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State, Ernest Ebina has revealed to CrossRiverWatch his near death experience with Commodore Yusuf Jonga Hinna of the Nigerian Navy who allegedly arranged for him to be thoroughly beaten for weeks, thrown off a three storey building which has left him with a broken back bone, swollen stomach with a failing system that makes urinate only with the aid of a cataract

Ebina who recounted his ordeal encountered in 2010 to this reporter in an exclusive interview said that Commodore Yusuf Jonga Hinna had travelled one certain week and upon returning said his 6.8 million naira was missing and his wife whom he (Ebina) had not been in good terms with invited some native doctors who falsely accused him unknown to them that he could speak Hausa and had heard most of their conversations informed him that “the Commodore’s wife had instructed them to say I was the one that took the money”.

According to Ebina, he was also taken alongside other stewards were taken to another herbalist in Makurdi, Benue State after Yusuf’s wife had earlier gone there and stayed for five days and was accused upon arrival, said that “Immediately I was taken home, they started beating me again. The oga’s (Commodore) son was the first to slap me and then other Navy boys followed, using several instrument ranging from gun to hammer, any weapon they could lay their hands on. I was handcuffed to my back while they did so, blood started coming out of my body including my nose and ear. My trouser and shirt were doubled, a black bag was hung on my neck and I was soaked in water.

“I was taken back again to my oga who asked me of his money, I reminded him of the time he left his house with me at Jaji and he came back and met everything intact, I also reminded him of the time I was given 2.5 million to keep for him while he was away and when he returned I handed over the money to him that if I wanted steal from him I would have ran away with the money, he said that I was telling stories. I told him to do whatever he felt like doing with me that I didn’t take his money and that God would keep me alive but it wouldn’t be well for him and his family”.

“But if I took the money I would be killed and my family wouldn’t even see my corpse. He ordered them to take me away, they did and started beating me again and threw me down from a three storey building. I became unconscious and woke up after two weeks and found myself in the hospital”.

As at the time of filling this report all efforts made to confirm the present rank and station of Commodore Yusuf proved abortive.
